The three hours and sixteen minutes clapping expedition featured strict rules -participants were expected to clap hands only with no stomping and or vocal noise , no musical instruments were supposed to be used in the expedition. Also all phones were to remain on silent mode and no parcipant was to take any bathroom break.
Photos that have been shared across social media platforms show very weary and tired parcipants clapping in various stages. Some congregants were seated in the hall while others sat outside on the lawn with their heads bowed.
Before they embarked on the massive expedition, Phaneroo Ministries International applied to the Guinness World Records organization. They also ensured that they had complied with all the guidelines set forth by the World Records Organization before embarking on the expedition.

“It underscores the organization’s ability to bring together people from diverse backgrounds under a shared sense of purpose, forging bonds that transcend borders and barriers.”
